4 out of 5 stars

Based on 16 ratings for this GP surgery


The practice works from two centres, in Hawkinge and Elham. We cover the villages and surrounding area. We have special interests in family planning, minor surgery, diabetes, respiratory, heart disease and much more.

We are very fortunate to have excellent staff who are all friendly, efficient and helpful and create a caring framework within which we work and see our patients.

We have well-equipped, fully computerised surgeries and are registered under the Data Protection Act.

From the 1/10/2014 we can now offer appointments 10:00 - 20:00 7 days a week. We still operate from the surgery during core hours (8:30 to 18:30), but we also have a gp  based at the new Hub service at the Royal Victoria Hospital Folkestone who will see patients from 10:00 to 20:00 for any acute (new/urgent) problems.  Please use the usual surgery number and an appointment convenient to you will be booked, alternatively call into the surgery to book.
